(ORLANDO SENTINEL) — Nike this morning canceled its All-Star shoe release after Thursday night’s near riot at Orlando’s Florida Mall, prompting disbelief among sometimes-agitated shoe collectors and investors who traveled from across the country to buy the limited-edition Nike Galaxy Foamposite.

A woman who was waiting in line to get into Foot Locker was arrested this morning for fighting and resisting deputies.

“Our priority is the safety of the community,” Nike said in a statement.

Deputies with the Orange County Sheriff’s Office are on scene now for crowd control.
